comment Is Quake II free now?
@Pacerier, copying something that is copyrighted and distributing it to others without the permission of the copyright holder is called "copyright infringement." Sometimes people also call it "software piracy." So, yeah, sure, you can do that. It's just illegal :)

@Pacerier, you can download the code (or a prebuilt binary, or a modified binary) and run it off your machine. The code is released under an open source license. The problem is the other stuff - models, textures, levels, etc. If you want to use the original Q2 versions of those things, you have to buy the game. If you make or download alternative models, textures, levels, etc, then you're in the clear.

@DavidEckert, max out your walls and everything else before you upgrade your Town Hall. It's not a requirement, but a suggestion.

comment Is there a term for games with overly precise controls?
@Brian, I think of "simulation" as more of a modifier to another genre in certain cases. For example, there are "games where you fly a plane" and then there are "flight simulators" - technically you're still flying a plane in a flight sim, but you're tangled in the details/minutiae that you'd normally ignore in another game. Something like Receiver I'd classify as a "shooter simulation" for example. However, I can see your point that, taken broadly, "simulator" can engulf practically any game genre.
